A woman has cried out for help after her employer in Saudi Arabia forced her to breastfeed his dogs and filmed the act.
It was gathered that the mother had left Kenya, where she’s from, and had gone to work in Saudi Arabia, where the alleged incident took place.
Francis Atwoli, Kenya’s Central Organization of Trade Unions (COTU) Secretary General, has now called on President William Ruto’s government to ban employment agencies overseeing migration of Kenyan workers to Saudi Arabia.
Atwoli said on Saturday, October 8, that he received a disturbing video from a woman in Saudia Arabia, who alleged that her employer forced her to breastfeed their dogs.
“She banned all employment agencies in Kenya.”Let this issue be a government-to-government.
“Let Kenya negotiate with Saudi Arabia on terms and conditions of service… so that our people can do decent jobs and not a job of breastfeeding dogs.”
Atwoli said the inhumane actions being witnessed in Saudi Arabia are denying Kenyans dignity and respect.
He added: “It denies us our own citizenship as Kenyans who are from a free and independent country.”I want to appeal to government to ban all employment agencies and review issues related to outside employment as advocated for by the International Labour Organization.”
